Re: clio authentique, problem fitting brake shoes

If you look at the pic I posted half way down the leaver that works the hand brake is
a lump that lump is a return stop and should rest on the shoe yours does not seem to
I think you need to loosen the hand brake adjuster off till it does, fit the spring that on
yours does not seem to be fitted then put the drum back, then if the auto adjuster is
working ok with hand brake off press the brakes a few times and that should adjust
them up once that's done adjust the hand brake till it starts to come on after about 4 clicks,
to be honest I think you need to get someone that knows what they are doing to sort
it as you real'y should not be taking chances with brakes.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
